Event: Transforming Housing in 2017 Summit

Calling all developers interested in affordable housing, the University of Melbourne's Transforming Housing network is set to host the Transforming Housing in 2017 Summit on Friday 2nd June.

The summit organisers would particularly like to hear from developers who have a genuine interest in delivering affordable and social housing. Please use the form below to register your interest.

About the summit

The event, hosted by the University of Melbourne’s Transforming Housing network, will bring together 60 stakeholders from the affordable housing sector including researchers; state government; local government; private developers; the investment community; and not-for-profit housing associations. It will be an opportunity to contribute to current housing debates, create solutions to pressing housing problems and network with others who have a genuine interest in supporting, funding, designing and delivering affordable and social housing for very low to moderate-income households.

Given the changes to tax incentives, access to land, and opportunities for funding related to affordable housing announced in this week’s Federal Budget and the Homes for Victorians strategy, this is an opportunity for interested developers to build both their knowledge and networks in Victoria.

If you wish to be part of the conversation, we invite you to register your interest by contacting Sarah Backhouse using the form below and by briefly stating why you’re interested in participating. As this event is capped at 60 participants, we cannot promise that all registrants will be able to attend, so early registration is encouraged.

Development & Planning

Hot on the heels of news that Holiday Inn will anchor Werribee's tallest proposed development, the application for 22-26 Synnot Street has gone to advertising. At over 42 metres in height and spread across a 2,567 square metre site the project is Werribee's largest, and accounts for the last of a trio of catalyst sites earmarked by Wyndham City Council as perfect for urban renewal.

Policy, Culture & Opinion

The marriage of old and new can be a difficult process, particularly when the existing structure has intrinsic heritage value. In previous times Fitzroy's 237 Napier Street served as the home of furniture manufacturer C.F. Rojo and Sons. Taking root during 1887, Christobel Rojo oversaw operations though over time the site would become home to furniture manufacturer Thonet.

The former site of John Batman's home, Batman's Hill is entering the final stages of its redevelopment. Collins Square's final tower has begun its skyward ascent, as has Lendlease's Melbourne Quarter Commercial and Residential precinct already. Melbourne Quarter's first stage is at construction and involves a new 12-storey home for consultancy firm Arup along with a skypark.

Late last year Urban Melbourne was invited for a tour of the new offices of CAPI in Windsor and a chat with its founder Pitzy Folk. The 1930’s building now known as '151 Albert' had previously housed Telstra and has been refurbished by renowned interior designer and family friend of the Folk family, Tamsin Johnson into 1,400 sqm of office and break out space across two floors and a basement.

Sustainability & Environment

Likened in some quarters as a miniature Federation Square, construction works began last week on a Prahran project that will rank as one of 2018's most progressive and important. Kane Constructions has the job of transforming 30-40 Izett Street under a $60+ million urban renewal initiative prompted by Stonnington City Council.
